What is A Brain Aneurysm?
An intracranial aneurysm is an abnormal bulging outward of one of the brain’s arteries. Can occur anywhere in the brain. Often discovered when they are ruptured, causing bleeding.

It is a severe disease because when the arteries become inflamed, there is severe pain, but sometimes the artery bursts and blood starts leaking out of the artery.
Apart from this, the nerves around the artery in which inflammation, i.e., nerves, also get affected.
This disease is severe because the symptoms of this disease are detected in the last stage.

Clipping surgery is done to treat the aneurysm. A neurosurgeon surgically places a tiny clip across the neck of the aneurysm to stop the bleeding.
It is a less invasive process than surgical clipping. The neurosurgeon inserts a hollow plastic tube into an artery, generally in your groin, and carries it through our body to this aneurysm.
The surgeon uses a guideline to push a soft platinum wire through the catheter and in the aneurysm. The wire coils inside the aneurysm and obstructs blood flow.
